If this is the same thing I'm finding in google, it is a prerelease .93 not
It is a bootable CD.  Is the thing you are working with in
a remastered environment?

In any case, there are probably only a handful of such users around and you
are probably going to find targeted help in the PCLinuxOS forum.
As you know how to enable flash in another debian based distro, the
pieces of stuff you need are no longer a puzzle in itself, but how to
make it work in that particular distro.  It's like knowing where the
hood release is in a Lamborghini or Lada.
